The Chennai Super Kings is the current IPL champion with some great chances for one more win. The team fans and the bettors already noted that the CSK now is in great shape so the future season can be as much success as the previous one. That’s why in the Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders the CSK is the clear favourite. For sure the Kolkata Knight Riders is also a very strong team and a worthy adversary. But in this exact pair and with the current CSK shape their chances for winning are much lower.
It should be noted that the previous IPL season was eminently forgettable for the Chennai Super Kings. The result is winning in the Indian Premier League and in a few other international competitions. The team succeeded to make it to the playoffs for the first time since the inception of the IPL. Besides, the Yellow Army, for sure, will try to repeat the success of the 2021 season. That’s why the team has already bought some famous players during the Mega Auction. Also, MS Dhoni will stay with the team, who is called by the fans as «captain cool».
Read some more information about the CSK team and their results in the IPL (previous seasons):
- The team is the four-time title winners and nine-time finalists. That’s the reason why the Chennai Super Kings will try to get one more trophy.
- CSK was established in 2008 and had at that time enough legendary players.
- The legends of the team are Suresh Raina with 5369 runs, Murali Vijay: 46 balls (The Fastest Century) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni: 212 (Most Sixes).
- The highest team total was only in 2010 and its number is 246/5!
There is even some more. Before this Indian Premier League competitive season, this team did a great job by retaining four main players and adding another 21 cricketers. This decision helped CSK to complete the 25-member squad almost right before the IPL season started. It’s also down to him, that the team became so strong for the last few seasons. For the whole time that he was playing in the yellow army, Moeen became a different player. So the team was ready to spend INR eight crore during the Mega Auction to retain him. Due to the stats Moeen has played 34 IPL matches and scored more than 666 runs. The all-rounders such as Moeen Ali have always been the strength of CSK and he will add to that division in the next few months.
The season 2021 has changed a lot for the CSK and most of the changes were made possible by MS Dhoni who is well known as the master of hending resources. Also, it should be noted that the team achieved notable results because of Ambati Rayadu, Robin Uthappa, Tushar Deshpande, Mahesh Theekshana and other legendary players. And the appearance of the new cricketers will increase the team’s effectiveness as well as enable it to beat the records. The result of this Mega Auction was great for the team because it got a few TOP cricketers who for sure will lead the team to victory. For sure this is possible only provided that there is will be well-coordinated teamwork.
